$69 Ford Focus Chip?

So on the homepage, right below the sign in section, there is an ad for a $69 Chip that claims to add 50 hp, msrp $400.00 WOW that is epic. Any one else noticed this? Any one else thing that this seems to good to be true.

thoughts, comments.

So this didn't go the way I was thinking.

.. I was going to use this terrible ad to ask what the best way to reprogram the ECU would be/ when would be the best time to flash it. I know a very small portion about piggybacks, and full resets, and I have read other threads about this subject, but I have no idea what I’m doing and was just hoping that some of the people who have fine tuned their cars could chip in.
